Beijing Bites Review, Electronic City outlet

00:30


Chinese and Thai cuisines that are available in India are somewhat different and Indian-ised versions of the original dishes. And that somehow seems to works very well for us, because from what I have noticed I can say that Chinese “Fast Food” is the second most popular fast food or meal, obviously after our respective regional favourites ! (It might be different in your case :P)

Last week, we went to the nearest Beijing Bites from where we stay, in Electronic city. This outlet is a fully fledged restaurant, not the usual tiny outlet in a food court of a mall.
But I have to say this beforehand that I did not like the ambiance much, it was okay.
Décor was basic and something I would not be very happy to see , but I can say it was okay.

We went for dinner, around 9 at night and the place was full so we had to wait for around 10 minutes and then we got a place. We had ordered while waiting so we were expecting a quick service. But, the people ordering after us were getting their food before us. Maybe it was our choice of unconventional dishes, but the service time was around 40 minutes.

We ordered Dragon rolls with Garlic sauce for starters. This was served quickly. On the menu you will see that this is spicy, but I did not find it to be spicy at all. The taste was good of the rolls.

The rolls were basically fried dumplings filled with minced chicken. The garlic sauce was very lightly flavoured , almost bland.

Next, came in our main course order –
Khao phad Kapde  , Mixed Nonveg Koithio, Honey hunan Chicken and Fish in oyster sauce. The quantity was sufficient for three people and two of us are large eaters anyway.

I really liked khao phad kapde, this is a Thai rice and is full of flavours. You will like this if you like strongly flavoured rice. Love the fact that this was really moist and full of seafood.

I didn’t know what Koithio was before I ordered and I was very happy to get what I didn’t expect.

I love flat noodles and Koithio is Flat noodles. This tastes okay and has an odd combination of sauces.
Lightly flavoured with lots of vegetable, this is something I would like to eat when I am looking for something light to eat. My only disappointment with this was that this was served to us cold.
I DO NOT like cold food.

Honey Hunan Chicken, sweet and savoury. Loved it! The chicken tasted really good as they were fried strips which soaked the gravy nicely. This is all sauce, no distinct flavour. But it is something you would like if you like light Chinese flavours. As, far as honey is considered , I didn’t get any distinct flavour of honey.

Fish in Oyster Sauce – Light and savoury, not spicy at all. I loved the soft cubes of fish. I have to say they were cooked to perfection.

So, to sum up I can say that apart from the service and ambiance, I like the food and pricing very much. Because, all these summed up to less that 1000 INR , which is pretty reasonable given the quantity. But, that is it.

I would go back there because they had some more interesting things on the menu which I would like to taste and will definitely update you about it.

Till then let’s see how I liked Beijing Bites-
Food- 3.25/5
Ambiance – 2.5/5 (They played only Himesh Reshamiya’s Songs!)
Service – 2.5/5
Cleanliness – 4/5
Value for money – 3.75/5
